According to the company, one such employee, a screener at a west coast airport took extra care of a passenger who was clearly distraught. A G4S press release states, “a young cancer patient passenger came through her checkpoint, and began to cry upon realizing she had lost her hat, and people could see her baldness. On her break time, our employee bought the girl a new hat, and found her in the airport to deliver it.”

In another award category, the company’s Security Guard of the Year was recognized for “his dedication to a major municipal transit hub. He has been securing this location for over 10 years, and his commitment was recognized by the local police service last year. Everyone at the station knows that, when he is on the job, their kids are safe and the site is well-protected.”

A G4S team tasked with protecting an Alberta oilsands site was also recognized for its impressive safety record: the team has managed more than 400,000 FTE hours without a single lost time or recordable incident.
